TORONTO, Dec. 15, 2014 /CNW/ - The world's 'greatest' spy Sterling Archer and his fellow covert team get back to business in Season 6 of Archer premiering on a new night, Thursday, January 8, 2014 at 10 p.m. ET/PT in the Fred at Night programming block; day-and-date with the U.S.
The Emmy-Award nominated series follows the international spy agency and the lives of its employees in the half-hour animated comedy. Although their work of espionage, reconnaissance missions, wiretapping and undercover surveillance is daunting and dangerous, every covert operation and global crisis is actually just another excuse for the staff to undermine, sabotage and betray each other for personal gain. In Season 6, the irreverent adventures continue as the spy team returns to their duties at office headquarters and Sterling Archer attempts to navigate fatherhood.
The series features the voices of H. Jon Benjamin as the highly skilled and incredibly vain master spy Sterling Archer; Aisha Tyler as Archer's fellow agent and ex-girlfriend, Lana Kane; Jessica Walter as Archer's domineering mother and spy agency director, Malory Archer; Chris Parnell as the easily intimidated comptroller-turned secret agent Cyril Figgis; Judy Greer as Malory's loquacious, dingbat secretary, Cheryl; Amber Nash as the discordant director of human resources, Pam Poovey; Adam Reed as the gay voice of reason, Ray Gillette; and Lucky Yates as the spy agency's possibly mad scientist/possibly clone of himself, Krieger.
Leading up to the epic return of the series, TELETOON at Night will air a lineup of favourite Archer episodes every weeknight starting December 29 to January 7 at 10 p.m. ET/PT. Season 6 episodes will be available for viewers to stream every Friday on the TELETOON at Night video player, following their premiere each week.
